Producers of "Terra Nova" are leaning towards a possibility of renewal. Although FOX has not picked up the show for a new season, people behind it are reported to have been moving to secure key actors, including Jason O'Mara and Stephen Lang, in preparation for production of season 2.

In addition, the producers are said to be in the hunt for high-level writers, who will join executive producers Brannon Braga and Rene Echevarria, as they are working on to improve the story. Meanwhile, the network's decision on whether or not it renews the series is expected to be announced in mid-January.

The prehistoric-set drama series' first season finale aired last Monday, December 19. The two-hour outing posted a 2.2 rating in adults 18-49 demo (up 5% from last week) and 7.2 million viewers (up 4%). It is believed that the show, which requires extensive post-production, might be ordered for 13 episodes in its second season, not 22 episodes like most other shows.

I have to agree with the previous writers when I say everyone I know loves Terra Nova and whats the point of selling us the boxed set if you are going to leave the story hanging in mid air. I think it would be very small minded of Fox to cut this series before the story is allowed to unfold. Also Fox must be aware of the revenue they will get from international sales of Terra Nova. We are waiting to see if this great show will return or will the wallets at Fox hide their money again. Go on fox take a chance and you may be pleasantly surprised.

we got into watching stargate universe, journey man, flash forward, no ordinary family and they cancelled them so agreeing with all brits on here take into account what we in UK watch before cancelling a show Fox, after all its a spielburg.

Totally love this show we need a second series to find out all the unanswered questions... Where did Lucas go? What's in the bad land? Another time fracture back to another era like 18 century and not 2149? How will the people cope - the stories of these people can be fantastic.... And we know what supposedly happened to the dinosaurs can the human being survive it - can we build a better future!!! Keep it going it could be extraordinary!

I'm with "UK- GIRL" on this, I wish FOX and the like would take into account the viewing figures of us Brits who avidly watch a lot of USA series like Terra', Stargate Uni', Flashforward, the Event..........etc etc. I DEMAND A 2nd season of Terra Nova......please:-D

Definitely want to see a Season 2. This is a cast that can grow together; can't wait to see how the 2 sides deal with being "on their own".

This show is fantastic. I really hope they put on a second season. This series is so unique. I thought it was going to be like Jurassic Park and was kind of like "whatever." But the show has great acting and the FX bring everything together in a realistic environment where you can grow to love the actors. "Excellent writing and production" Cant wait for SEASON 2

I am from the UK and Absolutely love this show!! I wish that America took into account the viewings overseas when deciding to renew a show or not. Loved Stargate Universe and they got rid of it on a cliffhanger which we will now never know about. I wish if they were cancelling a show they could do a 2 hour special or something to wrap most stuff up!!! Anyway Bring back Terra Nova for series 2, my whole family loves it!! xx

While I would prefer a 22 ep season, 13 is better than none. I will take what I can get. And I love that they want to bring in better writers. I just hope that they don't turn the characters into the brainless dead that are on most shows these days. It's one of the things that I loved most about this show, was how human the characters and the writing were. A lot of love to the actors, but really, the writers are my heroes of the show. :)

I hope they make the right decision and bring Terra Nova back. I really hate how I get interested in all of these great shows and then they take them off the air. I am unable to watch on Monday nights because we don't get FOX, however, I do watch it on HULU the next day. I think FOX needs to consider the factors of the other people that do this also. If they bring it back for another season I will determinately be getting the FOX channel.
